Homemade Presents Are the Best
Last week was my 40th birthday. Among the thoughtful and wonderful gifts I received, two really stand out as “favorites.”
I love coffee. A friend recently said to me, “I know you’re a coffee snob, so…” It made me laugh. My kitchen is decorated in coffee. My friend, Amy, of Amy Smith Creations, made me this amazing quilted table topper for my kitchen table.
I love the quilting on it.
Amy is so talented. I love having her in my life because I get to see what she’s creating and the final products. I wish I was half as talented as her. Look at how perfectly it matches my kitchen.
And then there’s this:
If you aren’t a Doctor Who fan, you have know idea how wonderful and amazing this gift Gregg had made for me is.
Our friend Debi Warford, who is designing my book covers, is as big of a fan as I am. She covets my Doctor Who theme song ring tone on my phone, I covet her ability to create a T.A.R.D.I.S. out of clay.
She even managed to make a sign on the door.
And look at the inside. Brilliant.
I’d originally thought to use it as a cookie jar, but my children will not be allowed near it. Instead, I’ll likely use it to store tea bags. Because it’s Doctor Who. :-)
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
You would bless me if you added me to your feed reader or subscribed via email.
You can also become a fan on Facebook or follow me on Twitter. I would love to see more of you!
(I love coffee and Dr. Who too.)
Your kitchen looks amazing. I have coffee-themed hand towels and pot holders, but we’re not in a house that I can do full out decorating in so that’s as far as I’ve taken it. Someday though my kitchen will resemble yours.
The TARDIS your friend made for you is brilliant. Tea would be perfect to store in it if you’re not going to use it for jammy dodgers. :)
